Let's go back to downtown Kazan, to the Black Lake and a park of the same name. Here you will find the Meatball Box, which may sound ordinary but in fact this restaurant serves dishes with Middle Eastern flair. The establishment is frequented by students as there are many universities around, and prices are surprisingly moderate. You will see many Russian and foreign tourists here — the restaurant has a big presence on social networks.
The main course menu offers meatballs and falafels. You can choose between two varieties of meatballs: chicken meatballs with tomato sauce or beef meatballs with curry. Falafels (deep-fried balls made from chickpeas) come in three varieties: the classic recipe, or with light yogurt sauce and herbs, or in pita bread with herbs and hummus.
Meatball Box recommends homemade hummus made according to its own recipe. This dish takes a lot of time and attention: pre-soaked chickpeas are ground and added to the dish. But don't worry: your order will come soon as all complicated ingredients are prepared in advance.
